dc.description.abstractData on 2,822 Vanderbilt University graduates are used to investigate alumni giving behaviorduring the eight years after graduation. A two stage model accounting for incidental truncation is used tofirst estimate the likelihood of making a contribution and second estimate the average gift size conditionalon contributing. The type of financial aid received as an undergraduate appears to have a greaterinfluence on subsequent alumni generosity than the amount received. Adding some scholarship to a loanonlypackage or eliminating all loans from a mixed loan-grant package increases the likelihood of asubsequent contribution. Increasing the total size of the package or altering the proportions of an alreadymixed package appears to be inconsequential for future donations. Students who receive small meritscholarships contribute more as alumni than students who receive either no merit scholarship or a largemerit scholarship.en_US
